Do they still sell typewriters? Old or new, doesn't matter. Thanks.

My son needed one for as a prop a few years back. I went hunting and managed to find one "old-fashioned" type at Cash Converter in Jurong East. Can give the Cash Converters a call to see if they have any available. I was lucky as they happen to have one when I called. They were nice enough to reserve for me and I dashed down to get it. And it's a working set on top of it. :love:

jtoh, my parents happened to have an electronic typewriter at their place in Yishun. The garang guni man does not want it cos its electronic.

Do let me know if you are interested. Not sure if it is still working though. Or you can try ebay/cash converter.
